Bolton Wanderers Confirms New Partnership With University Of Bolton

Bolton Wanderers are delighted to confirm that the University of Bolton will become the club’s first shorts sponsor.

Phil Parkinson’s men will sport the University’s branding on the reverse of their shorts in all competitions throughout the 2017/18 season.

The University of Bolton has a long standing partnership with Bolton Wanderers Football Club and will become a Platinum Partner which will see their advertising feature across all digital platforms at Macron Stadium.

Commercial Manager John Ashley said: “Two institutions within the town forming a valuable partnership will add value to the community.

“The University’s LED advertising messages will give their education opportunities a wider reach across the UK through the television coverage Bolton Wanderers receives.”

Anna Fitzpatrick, Head of Sport and Biomedical Sciences said: “The partnership between these two Bolton organisations is one we are extremely proud to be continuing. Bolton Wanderers FC and the university share a strong sporting heritage, and the University of Bolton is excited to support the club in the upcoming season while further developing our involvement.

“This close working relationship provides us with the opportunity to increase awareness of the university’s offering alongside a long-standing partner, while providing our students with the very best facilities and experiences.”

Bolton Wanderers will continue to use the state-of-the-art, £31m Bolton One sports complex for testing and rehabilitation, which is located on the university campus. The project was commissioned jointly between the university, Bolton Council and NHS Bolton to provide professional facilities to both students and the local community.
